Discover, Plan, & Connect

Cooking for people is an inside job. And it’s important to be able to share tips with other professionals, stay inspired and keep clients interested by discovering new recipes, then tie it all together with an end-to-end game plan.

Hands-On Solutions for Clients

We had to build not only the professional’s experience, but also the client’s. This meant being able to print deliverables, share recipes and menus via desktop, mobile web, and native web, and email invites or client notifications. We were forced to take something very complex and strain out the difficulty, leaving a delicious slow-cooked broth of user satisfaction.

Combining Our Solution with Viome's Micro-Biome Solution

There’s a difference between what your taste buds enjoy, and what’s healthy for your gut. To partner with a top micro-biome tech company, we designed an app that generates a meal plan custom-tailored to your specific microbes. Beautiful, high-tech, and a user experience that goes down easy.

Using Modernmeal to Make My Own Delicious & Healthy Creations

Being a regular user of the platform, I can attest to it’s effectiveness. It tuned up my cooking skills and I turned into quite the home chef. Not only did I have fun using our software, but it created a real sense of appreciation for cooking and healthy food.
